Overall Condition and Pre-Restoration Defects with Quality of Restoration: good to very good. The poster had small paper loss at the bottom crossfold, with tears and paper loss scattered across the bottom horizontal fold, affecting the top of the title. There was paper loss in the right end of the credits, extending into the bottom right edge of the image. There were tears and areas of paper loss around the edges of the poster and a tear in Talmadge's right cheek, under her eye. Overall, the poster was in good condition prior to linenbacking. The poster was pretty well backed, but you can see signs of the above defects and the restoration of the above defects.
